AWS Container Day - Persistent File Storage for Amazon EKS with Amazon EFS

Containerizing applications that require data persistence or shared storage is often challenging since containers are ephemeral in nature, are scaled in and out dynamically, and typically clear any saved state when terminated. In this session you will learn about Amazon Elastic File System (EFS), a fully managed, elastic, highly-available, scalable, secure, high-performance, cloud native, shared file system that enables data to be persisted separately from compute for your Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) deployments. You’ll gain an understanding of the EFS Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver, and how it simplifies configuring elastic file storage for Kubernetes clusters.

  4. EFS doesn't work with Windows containers. FSx for Windows is the only comparable service that I can find, but it requires an Active Directory service to be in place. Is EFS going to be available for Windows containers? I'd like my Linux containers and Windows containers to have access to the same shared storage.
